In The Garden


Ahh, another Friday and another weekend ahead…love it!

I thought I’d show some shots of our garden. This is one of my favorite spots. Every weekend morning, we sit and have our coffee and watch the birds from the window. The birds are all over the place.

Take a lookie; I captured these this past week…

The roses have taken off like crazy.  Be sure I will be using these flowers in some image transfers soon.

Peonies are popping also.

Yellow Finches..

Now it’s HUMMER-time….

and then.. as I came down to my office to work this morning, I was greeted with this guy outside my window in the bush…. CAN YOU STAND IT???  My god.. I hate snakes. (sorry for all you snakes lovers out there). Just gross.

I actually wasn’t even going to give this Sammy the snake any blog time, but I thought it was fascinating to see who joined him in the bush… In my 20 years living in this house, I have never seen a Chipmunk on a bush.  I think he was thinking he could take the snake…

I waited with my camera in hand to see if any action would happen but it did not.  I thought the snake was going to turn around and get chippy.

Brave chipper for sure..

Hope you enjoyed the show…

.. and thanks for stopping by.


A Mix in New England


It’s been raining here in Massachusetts for two days.  I secretly like the rain and I work in a home office so I don’t have to leave if I choose not to.  I am fortunate, I know.  How I wish I could just play in my studio listening to the rain pitter patter against the house.  A very comforting sound to me.

We also had our first frost this week.. it’s always a milestone to see the evident while layer of coldness on the grass.  The frost that has to be scraped off of car windows.  Brrr.. winter is coming; that’s what it says to everyone..so get ready.

Here is a couple of pictures of frost on my roses and hydrangeas.

This past weekend.. the strangest thing happened.. all of a sudden a huge flock of black birds (not crows) descended on our yard.. I mean hundreds of them.. I ran for my camera and caught this:

Attacking my bird feeder. …. and then they were gone… never to be seen again.  Did someone tell them there was a free buffet or something?  Strange, don’t you think?  A sign.. or nothing?

I’ll be back in the studio next week and I take a few days off of work and enjoy some art play.  I’ll be posting some new works in the works.

Thanks for stopping by.
